Didn't mean to be away so long...lots of things happening lately, but maybe I can now catch up.
this pretty deer was right outside the kitchen window, helping herself to the rose bush and peach tree.
She acted hungry so we let her enjoy herself. I don't think she could do any more damage than this hot dry weather has already done.
We had just about give up on getting any rain, but then late yesterday this big dark cloud formed right overhead. There was thunder and lightning and rain...two inches of rain!
Poppy decided to run out and help the old one-legged rooster get inside the hen house before the storm. On his way back to the house, it started to rain, so Poppy, being excited, stopped and did a little Indian rain dance. It was hilarious!! but as he was dancing around there in the driveway, lightning flashed and then it thundered...wish you could have seen him run for the house. Sure wish I had had my camera...I was standing on the porch watching.
Anyhow, we sure were happy to get the rain.
It's getting late and Eli is snoring. Hope to be back here soon.
